Solar Energy

Photovoltaic collectors installed on the roof of the old Breazeale Barn are now collecting solar energy and turning it into electrical energy. The sun will supply an estimated 8% of the energy used by the Reserve. If you're interested in how the panels are performing, you can view their actual energy output at this web site.
